Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has revealed that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was left shocked by Thomas Tuchel's departure.

Aubameyang made his comeback to the Premier League with the Blues this summer in order to reunite with his former Dortmund boss.

However, the reunion was very shortlived. The 33-year-old played just 58 minutes under Tuchel before the Blues decided to dismiss him.

Arrizabalaga has now revealed that the forward was left stunned by the decision.

He said: "He was a little in shock, a lot of change, the last two or three days were very crazy for him, everything that happened to him was a misfortune."

Despite Tuchel's departure, Aubameyang is determined to prove himself at Chelsea, and he is looking forward to working with Graham Potter.

The former Arsenal captain will be aiming to score his maiden Blues goal when the Blues visit Crystal Palace in the Premier League next month.

Chelsea are currently lying sixth in the league standings with 10 points.
